Pool report #2 - 5/24/17
Carol Lee • Wall Street Journal
May 24, 2017: 08:42 AM


"Thank you so much," President Trump said to Pope Francis when they shook hands.

After shaking hands, the pope and POTUS walked into the pope's private study, which is just off the room where they shook hands.

When pool entered the study, the pope and the president were seated across from each other at the pope's wooden desk.

POTUS told the pope it's "a very great honor."

The pope did not say anything. He did not smile. He looked at pool several times. We were quickly ushered out at 8:33am.

Pool is holding outside the study while the president and the pope have their one-on-one meeting. We will be brought in for the greeting of the US delegation and gift exchange.
